What Children Need
Children are precious. Someone famous once said “give me the child and I will give you the man” (or the woman). Everyone knows and agrees that children need love, nourishment, education and physical activity. They also need to play, to freely explore the world; they need to find their creativity.
A child needs books, music and creative play in their life to help them grow. It has been proven that music connect neuron in the brain helping to develop and stimulate learning, and books opens the world and stimulates the imagination.
There is something sad about a young adult that says they are not creative, because they have come to understand that being creative means being an artist or musician. Creativity is about living a life knowing there are solutions to any issue or problem that presents itself. Creativity is about freely exploring the world of imagination, allowing ourselves to get lost and breathing in the joy of being alive. As parents we owe it to our children to encourage their passions and the best way to do this is to express our own.
So let us join them in playing, dancing, being silly and laughing till our bellies hurt. Let us share and cherish the ever so fleeting moments of their childhood.
